Question about Epson Perfection 2400 Photo Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

How do I change the type of file my scanner saves a document in?

Whenever I scan a document on my computer it saves it as a JPEG. Is there any way to make my computer scan a document as a word document? It makes it difficult to send the scanned image to others.

No .Type reconiznition software is very complicated and expensive. All a scanner does is divide the sceen into millions of dots and copies those dots in Picture(JPEG) format. It's software know nothing except to copy what is there.

Put scanned document on my computer to print afterwards if necessary and read on my computer


I am unclear on your problem but in general..you use the scanning software that came with the scanner scan the document and save the scanned file to your computer as a pdf file for documents or tiff or jpg for photos, (you set the type of file you want to save with the software options)
To print afterwards open the pdf with acrobat and print it
Did that answer your question?.

I own canoscan Lide-25. I want to scan forms and fill in the blanks of the form from my computer then print for my use. How to do this? Am I to buy any splecial software other than OCR already provided.


I wouldn't use OCR, too difficult. I would save your scanned document as a jpeg and edit in Photoshop. From Photoshop thay can be printed or saved as a pdf file.

I want to save scanned document as a .doc using CanoScan 8400F


Scanners only see millions of dots. Unless it has software to convert a picture into a document, all documents are seen by scanners as pictures made of of millions of dots. Software is available to convert it to a Microsoft Doc format but it is very expensive.

Saving a document as a pdf


JPEG gives small size outputs as compare uncompressed TIFF. This is probabbly the best for color. Try reducing the resolution to 150-300 dpi.

Setting the format of the picture i scan


Ok I am not sure why ya scanner won't save in JPEG .. however converting the files to JPEG is relitively "Simple". After saving the Scanned picture.. Open it up in say MS Paint, Painshop etc, then simply choose "Save As.." from the File Menu, and save it as a NEW image file this time with a JPEG extension. IE: origional... picture.png or picture.bmp ... save as ...picture.jpg .. ya should be good to go. :)
